Looking for an outdoor experience like no other in the area? Look no further - The Greenway is approximately 2,200 acres of natural open space in the heart of Grand Forks, ND and East Grand Forks, MN.

What's your pleasure? The Greenway features several parks, campground, 2 golf courses, 3 disc golf courses, over 20 miles of multi purpose trails, shore bank fishing sites and so much more! Come enjoy this unique opportunity for year-round outdoor recreation right in the heart of our two communities!

The Greenway concept was initially proposed by the North Dakota Congressional Delegation after the flood of 1997. The Greenway is more than a device for flood mitigation; it is an enhancement to the quality of life for residents of the Greater Grand Forks area.

The wait is over!

The lower Greenway trails and the dog park in Lincoln Drive Park are now open for use


It's time to get out and enjoy the warm weather and see the first signs of spring in the Greenway.


River levels remain high in some areas and the wet ground along the trail system can present hazardous conditions.  Users are cautioned to use discretion when near high water and muddy areas.


Upcoming Greenway Events & Meetings

There are no events scheduled at this time.


The Greenway Technical Committee serves as a technical advisory board to the managing agencies of the Greenway. Membership of the committee includes representatives of the four managing agencies and other parties interested in the development of the Greenway. The Greenway Technical Committee has no governing authority but serves as the primary mechanism for the four managing agencies to discuss Greenway management issues. Meetings are held bimonthly and are open to the public. Staff from the four managing agencies meets on the alternate months.

The Greenway & Trail Users Advisory Group is open to local citizens who share an interest in the development and use of the Greenway and trails in the Greater Grand Forks community. Meetings are held the second Tuesday of every month.

The Red and Red Lake Rivers Greenway will protect residents of Grand Forks and East Grand Forks from flooding, provide opportunities for economic growth, improve and restore ecological stability of the river corridor, link residents and tourists to four seasons of recreation and transportation facilities, provide linkage between the cities, preserve and promote the history and culture of the region through education, and improve the quality of life for future generations.

Written by workshop participants (residents of Grand Forks, ND and East Grand Forks, MN) and prepared by Greenways, Inc. and the US Army Corps of Engineers as part of the Greenway Plan of September 2001.
